Orange County Youth Foundation

The Orange County Youth Foundation (OCYF) was founded in 1958 as the Brea Lions Club’s primary means of raising funds used to support various charitable and beneficent organizations in Orange County.  The first game was played in August 1959 at the Santa Ana Bowl (Eddie West Field/Santa Ana District Stadium). 

OCYF’s purpose is to conduct an annual North-South All-Star Prep School Football Game in the County of Orange and to contribute the profits of said football game to needy and deserving children of the County of Orange.  It was founded to support various Youth Charities, either directly or through other charitable organizations, such as Western Youth Services. 

The OCYF is the Brea Lions principal mechanism to receive gifts, solicit funds, hold, manage and disburse money and property, both real and personal, and to foster community interest and participation in the annual North-South All-Star Prep School Football Game. The Club has raised well over $2,000,000.

This year’s game will mark 56 years that OCYF has been successfully satisfying this purpose.
